Remember thee is a difference in "common household bleach" as it used to known and today's most common 'ultra' bleach.

Ultra tends to be 6% calcium hypochlorite, while the old school bleach was more like 3%-4%.

That will play I to any formula you use.

Same as Motocross Camper our water comes from our own well. and I run it through our R. O. system. the potable water tank on our 5th wheel is 33 gal. When we are going on a long trip to campgrounds that have hookups, I fill the tank with our well water and that is what we drink and cook with.
Once a year I clean the tank with bleach I add one quart of bleach to the tank, fill the tank, turn on the pump and run water to each valve untill I get a strong smell of the bleach, let set for a day then drain & flush. I don't drain the tank unless its going to freeze.

I just flushed out my fresh water tank this morning. I had it partially filled up on the last trip. I drained some out, flushed the commode several times, and also ran the faucets to put some in the gray tank. I did a good flush on all systems before the next trip next week. I even ran my hot water heater for a checkout.
